La nature à privilégier pour une Digital Detox

Smartphones, tablets, computers, connected watches… Our electronic companions are always with us. Today, many of us feel overwhelmed by notifications and feel the need to disconnect for a few days. HomeCamper has put together THE instructions for a successful « Digital Detox »!

What is the Digital Detox?

Digital Detox, which originated in the United States, is a period of time during which an individual cuts himself or herself off from screens either totally or partially. The concept has become very popular in recent years in response to a growing desire to disconnect. This practice has been the subject of numerous studies revealing both physical and psychological benefits. We’ve listed some of them below to covince you!

The benefits of a Digital Detox

You don’t have to wait days to see the effects. With Digital Detox, the benefits are immediate:

  • Improved quality of sleep
  • Improved concentration
  • Decreased visual fatigue
  • Reduced anxiety
  • Reduced risk of depression

In short, you will feel better in your head and in your body. And for those of you for whom leaving your smartphone seems like an insurmountable ordeal, we’ve prepared some tips to make the separation as smooth as possible.

How to proceed?

The success of your digital detox depends on two things: discipline and willpower. The aim is not to get rid of your devices forever, but to reduce their use and stick to it. Here are some tips that will be very useful!

  • Start by taking stock of your daily screen use
  • Set times when you can use them and stick to them!
  • Define places where you don’t want to use them, such as the bedroom for example
  • Don’t hesitate to turn off notifications and sort out the applications you no longer use
  • Find new activities such as reading, cooking or sports!
  • Travel for a few days if possible without your smartphone or in places without an internet connection (you can find the perfect place on 😉 )

The hardest part is certainly having the courage to take the plunge, but once you’ve had a taste of disconnection, believe us, you’ll find it hard to do without!
